National Signing Day is rapidly approaching, and early January signals the season for high school All-American games to kick off, with three Oklahomans representing in the two marquee games.

Two Oklahoma commits, Sterling Shepard of Heritage Hall and Alex Ross of Jenks, will suit up in the Under Armour All-American Bowl, playing on opposing teams, while Barry Sanders, Jr. will play in the long-standing Army All-American Bowl and announce his college intentions during the game.

However, those aren't the only names in-state fans should be watching in upcoming games. Six OU commits will be participating in one of the games, with Oklahoma State quarterback commit Wes Lunt having already competed in the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl in Arizona.

In addition, top-tier recruits Dorial Green-Bekham and Brandon Beaver – both considering Oklahoma – will also play in the Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio.
